Where's Will Farell?
Argh!!! They're telling me how they build Jack-In-The-Boxes!!! LOL Anyways, in a film I'm 95% sure I've seen before, the creation of a Jack In The Box toy is explained, from it's highly complicated drawings, experimental stage, blueprinting then production. This movie, if you havent totally figured it out, is made for kids, so this is dumbed down a little bit. But it's still fun, with plenty of amused adult and kid folk looking pleasantly amused at the toy. One thing though, I wouldn't wanna be the woman testing out the songboxes on the JintheB's all day long on the production line..

Probably from 1956
A look inside a Mattel toy factory. This film is not sponsored by Mattel so we only see the name on the front of the building and on a couple of blueprints.
There are a few clues to the date of this film:
01:01 - Cars out front range in years from 1952-1956.
02:55 - A 3 month calendar on wall shows April, May & June with Jun 3rd starting on Sunday. Can't read the year but only 1951, 1956, & 1962 work for this era. The May calendar is in the middle as a mark-up sheet so that would be the current month.
